I still have 2 shots left to do. and I think I want to try them at 1000 yards.
When it comes to rifles and hitting targets at long distances with varying conditions I think that confidence usually comes mixed with a good dose of ignorance... LOL
I am confident that I can hit a whitetail in the boiler room at anything short of 250 yards 98% of the time with almost any conditions I normally encounter and am used to but as the distance extends beyond that magical 250 yards my confidence goes down rapidly. LOL
I've been shooting and hunting way to many years to think that hitting game where I need to is a sure thing when I get way out there. That doesn't mean that I won't practice often, use quality equipment, handload carefully, and take that shot when I'm sure that I've done everything I can do to make it count but I don't know if I'll ever be nearly the shot some of the people on here are.
It sure is fun to keep pursuing that dream though... LOL
Those thousand yard shots should be very interesting... ;)
Looking forward to seeing the videos.
I'm loading all day today. One of my shooting buddies bailed on me at the last minute this morning so I'm trying to get enough loaded to last me a few weeks and so I can better concentrate on shooting and less on load development.
I'm also going to start shooting at the local 300yard range once a week so I can have the advantage of the good benches and shade the range offers. It's getting a bit hot on my hunting leases and deep shade is necessary for keeping me from heat stress and to get the rifle barrels cooled better.
